Annual "Shred Cancer" Event Aims to Raise $50,000 for Cancer Prevention Research
Date:5/10/2017

The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) and PROSHRED® Philadelphia (Proshred) will host their fourth annual, nationwide “Shred Cancer” event on Saturday, June 10. Community members are invited to bring their personal documents to be securely shredded while raising funds for cancer research and prevention.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of the Meridian Bank branch in Paoli (1776 E. Lancaster Avenue, Paoli, PA 19301). PROSHRED® Philadelphia is hosting its 2017 Shred Cancer Event in conjunction with its key sponsor, Meridian Bank.

Individuals may bring up to 10 boxes of documents to the event, and PROSHRED® Philadelphia’s on-site shredding trucks will safely and securely dispose of unwanted personal documents. We’re asking for donations of between $5 to $10 per box, and 100% of the money will go directly towards funding AICR’s cancer research and education programs. Come and enjoy snacks and refreshments, and learn more about what you can do to live heathier, as well as help those that you love.

“Generous support from millions of individual Americans—and not government or industry grants—have allowed AICR to fund emerging research and to continue our programs for educating the public about what practical steps we all can take every day to live in a world with less cancer,” said AICR Senior Vice President of Development Mary Beth Healy, “The funds raised by the Proshred community makes a significant impact on the health of millions of Americans.”

Ginny Heron-Doerr, President of PROSHRED® Philadelphia, commented, “We at ProShred are extremely privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to the crucial research conducted by AICR. Over the last 35 years AICR's work has led to increased awareness between diet, exercise and the prevention of many cancers. It is our hope that our collective efforts across the Proshred system will raise awareness and money for the work AICR conducts. We hope to see everyone on Saturday, June 10, 2017, at our Shred Event. Together we can Shred Cancer."

First held in 2014 on National Cancer Survivors Day, past events have contributed over $100,000 to cancer research. This year AICR and PROSHRED® Philadelphia have set a goal to raise $50,000 for research.
